different group or a specialist in the irs. the failure of the ig of dayton to acknowledge the fact is a fundamental flaw in the investigation and the public perception of this issue. i wrote and asked him to explain these omissions. all committee democrats have asked you, mr. chairman, today that you ask him to return to the committee to provide the appropriate context for his report and ask the questions under oath regarding all these matters. it has an obligation to fully understand the manner in which they conducted his audit. a deeply troubling is that when asked about the new information has come to light, the treasury office initially said in the media reports, and i quote, that the audit report answered questions it was asked to address and the house oversight committee chairman darrell issa had requested that investigators merely focus on the key party organizations. we asked him tigta about this in the letter and he responded, quote, many of the press reports are not accurate. if these are some of the reports are accurate, tigta's initial explanation of the scope of the au

and 2004 when they were being investigated by the irs so yes i agree that there is cultural intimidation going on but it's not by the white house. it's by the my republican colleagues. that is why we demand the ig summoned back to his committee to answer questions once again under oath. we also demand the republican culture of intimidation stop so progressive groups will feel comfortable testifying before us here. the chairman's continued silence or excusing of the abuse of the groups makes it harder for these groups to come before us. we need to be a committee of facts and not a witchhunt. if we plan to get to the bottom of the investigation and hopefully, hopefully be able to tackle other legislative issues that we have coming before this committee of great importance to the country. so i demand that this republican culture of intimidation against progressive groups be stopped and that they be as outraged as we were outraged, democrats were outraged and we expressed our outrage when groups if we don't agree with politically or ideologically are being attacked or being inti
